Aesop Rock - My Belly Lyrics




6AM and I'm dyin' for breakfast
Yawn and stretch then I'm diving for shellfish
Back up at the surface in a second or three
With a trophy Abalone from the depths of the sea
Water front critters in a symphony of sniggers
That's a pretty big meal for a pretty little dipper
How you gonna carry home all that food
I'm a kick back slow and point my toes at the moon
Cause

My Belly is a table
My Belly is a table
When I'm laying on my back
Snack plate upon my navel
Escargot, crab salad on a bagel
My Belly is a table
Say, say say what!?

6PM clam diggin all day
Big fat Belly like the grand buffet
You bobbin with the best back stroke on the river
Potlucks stretch from his throat to his liver
I'm never late for dinner, I make no reservations
All I do is pirouette into a den of celebration
With a delicate maneuver truth be told
My otter pop used to call it the sushi roll
You see...

My Belly is a table
My Belly is a table
When I'm laying on my back
Snack plate upon my navel
Crawdad, cocktail, prawns, basil
My Belly is a table
Say, say say what!?

Shhh shhhh who's making all that noise!
We're trying to sleep!
I'm trying to sleep over here!
Me too, me too, me too
Me too, me too, me too
Who's that?

Twelve o'clock midnight quiet on a beach
Not a creature is stirring they're defiantly asleep
All except one, eyes peeking at the shore
Mind on his stomach and his stomach on more
Slip in to the water where he nestled with the bottom
If he wrestle with the mussel he will render it forgotten
Rise with the take found lights in his face
And the whole wide lake lights like surprise we're awake!
(Surprise yayyyy!)
I hope he caught more than one!
(That'd be great, food, food, foood, food)

My Belly is a table
My Belly is a table
When I'm laying on my back
Snack plate upon my navel
Calamari pan fried scallops and potato
My Belly is a table
Say, say say what!?
Say, say say what!?
Say, say say what!?

    Who disliked this.. Wtf

    Joseph Mull

    Say what?!

  3. Matthew Fodell

    Hahahaha coming off the masterpiece that is The Impossible Kid, this is such a hilarious follow up. For what it is— great work. Probably not going to revisit it like I do Labor Days or None Shall Pass xD

  4. Steve Garvey

    I would love for him to make a rap album for kids. This is a really good song. Something like this would be a good way to entertain kids and be educating at same time

  5. Corbin Garber

    I love how this childrens’ song is more well-written and complex than most mainstream hip-hop.

  6. Unit Coordinator

    why does this slap

  7. RJ Hokke

    We need a Aesop Rock's Fables album

  8. ɪ'm ɴot wearɪɴg aɴy paɴtɪes

    aesop for the children

  9. Gavin Knight Jackson

    Lol track needs a video

  10. ca13bk9

    Beautiful😂😂

  11. Jackonian

    *_"Me too."_*

    _"Who was that?"_

    Pffft

  12. Thomas Teo

    This song makes me think of my fatass sister

  15. DRUMS RUGGED

    Aesop Rock with the real ill shit!!

  16. 2BuckChuck

    Ian goes to Jeremy like "hey i wrote this song about otters, wanna draw art for it?"
    Jeremy: *DROPS ACID*

    Cunning Linguist

    2BuckChuck... legit..

    Heather Sitz

    IAN huh?😍

  17. Bob Gnarly

    I discovered Jeremy fish and Alex pardee from Aesop

  18. Notorious B.O.B.

    How do I get permission to use this song in my YouTube videos? This song is awesome!!!

  19. Aj Anderson

    "Yawning stretching" sounds like a throwback to the end of 9-5ers anthem

    fishfoshh

    noticed that too! if i never make it home today god bless

  20. marthwithablackheart

    Some dope ass

  21. xele fonte

    this song is wack as fukc

  22. Bazooka Tooth

    Any Aesop song referencing animals in any capacity always stand out to me. Living up to the Aesop name

  23. Chazzie317

    is this whole song a south park reference?

  24. Jesse Hatch

    eat some mushrooms fat ass

  25. T Lindsey

    I love this haha

  26. Da CookieGod

    Aesop's strangeness is dope

  27. ValhallaBeckons

    Between this and Kirby, I think there's a lot he could do with kid-friendly subject matter. P.S.: The Kirby video is dope, because cat.

  28. Bill fred

    1:20 -1:35 lmao. So funny

  29. Cj Williams

    Pic is disturbing, song is dope.

  30. Bill True

    thanks man () new cudupszhion

  31. Red Flanagan

    I want this to be part of a full length concept album in the style of The Fantastic Mr. Fox. Rob Sonic could be a badger, Homeboy Sandman could be an alleycat, and Slug and Brother Ali would need to get worked in there somewhere too. Doomtree would be great also.

    Mr. Limbs

    A bunch of animal rappers living in the roots of the lightning-split Doom Tree. I'd watch it.

    Katie Sprague

    Adventures of the Mind yaas!

  32. Nicholas Ledue

    song is dope, obviously

  33. Omnicron

    Aes never fails to bring a cheesy grin to my face. Love this guy.

  34. Nate Vest

    +Rhymesayers Entertainment - I hope a children's LP materializes.  My eight year old son absolutely loves AR.

  35. Vincent

    I would kill for an "Aesop's Fables" rap album. Please God Aes make this happen!

  36. Lord Fab Furs

    Don't know how I missed this for so long tbh. Found it after finding Lice 2.
    Aes slays.

  37. Itchythakiller

    Jesus fuck what a treat! A fucking great end to my day. I love you AR. Always have, always will.

  38. Folks Around

    Love to see a whole album "aesops fables" of children's story tracks

  39. Anthony D

    jeremy fish back at it again with another BANGIN' ARTWORK

  40. CrimsonSpectre

    Aesop .. finally!

  41. Levi D

    I just want Aesop to keep writing and writing and writing...

  42. Wyatt Wilson

    When you get the best science lesson of your life from aesop rock.

  43. Bobbybrine

    when I click the free download link it just takes me to the soundcloud, and I checked the description of the track but I didn't find a link

    Rhymesayers Entertainment

    On the Soundcloud link, there is a download button under the track player.

    Bobbybrine

    @Rhymesayers Entertainment oh, ok

    Beat Junkie2016

  46. Aggu lia

    jeremy fish ;)

  47. Gunnar Brady

    love Aesop, one of those artists that doesn't really need to use profanity to complete his style
    not to say i don't appreciate they aspect in other artists, but it's a definite plus for the youngins.

  48. Jon Hartman

    Gangster! Gotta love Aesop, one of the most original deliveries in hip hop.

  49. Benjamin Miller

  50. paul sallee

  51. Obi Jawn

    Joey Raia cooked up a hawt one

  52. Robin Lefebvre

    So, Aesop Rock and Jeremy Fish are friends ? Great work, both of you. Belgium's ready for you guys, gig venues and walls alike :)

  53. bmxdirect

    FKN love it. Cheers AR!

  54. Boogerwolf

    still obsessed with The Impossible Kid.

    Brandon Elam

    for real, such a perfect follow up to skelethon, and once again continues to show his growth as an artist and as a person. ever since hmm I feel like he's really starting to come into his own on a whole other level, and really have fun chronicling his own aging in life.

  55. PlatinumPerfect

    FaZe Up

  56. Zuldope Gaming

    BEASSTTT!!

  57. Cali Norte

    doap ✊😆

  58. GodKing Yona

    AR, I can't believe how many presents you have given us?! I really appreciate it, the Lice album too, it's not often an artist gives presents like that and I think it's really cool of you and Rhymesayers for doing these things.

  59. ebisawkward

    yes please

  60. Human Evolution

    I love how Aesop is still Rockin but I miss the old deep intense lyrics and sounds. I listen to every new Aes track hoping it'll sound like the old stuff I used to be obsessed with. Still a fan :)

  61. PrincipalProductions

    Mah belli iza taybel!

  62. Marcko Does Random Gameplay

    amazing 🎧

  63. Hive Mind 11

    The panning was so dope when everyone was sleepin over there.

  64. Hive Mind 11

    Did Rhymesayers ever find an artist off of Youtube? We would love to hear some criticism. Hive Mind 11 on Soundclick, Soundcloud, iTunes. We do all of our recordings, mixing, and mastering.

  65. 900cats

    You bobbin with the best back stroke on the river

    My attempt at Lyrics (I just uploaded to genius too):

    6AM and I’m mad for breakfast
    Yawn and stretch then I’m nabbing the shellfish
    Back up at the surface in a second or three

    Water front critters in a symphony of sniggers
    That’s a pretty big meal for a pretty little dipper
    How you gonna carry home all that food
    I’ma kick backs level point my toes at the moon
    Cus.

    My Belly is a table

    Redsparrowe123

    aesop frequently uses rhyming words within the line like 'dying and diving'. it helps me understand which word he is likely using if it's obscured

    Brutal Whale

    @Redsparrowe123 Ahhh, I never realised that , thanks! He is one of the few rappers I've found where I can't hear a song for the first time and spit it while reading the lyrics. My brain literally can't handle his word play/ vocabulary.

    Redsparrowe123

    +Brutal Whale I feel you dude. he's my favorite rapper for a decade so when I hear a new verse or track I alwats do what you just did

    Brutal Whale

    @Redsparrowe123 I'm quite new to rap, only been listening for a few years. While trying to figure out the lyrics I listened in half speed at one point and listening to his rhythm was ridiculous. Absolutely nailing the syncopation, my mind was blown :P

    ocean cameron

    only revision is i think he says im dying for breakfast not mad for breakfast

  88. Paul Furto

    u r the shit keep on keepin a rocks!!!!!!

  89. Mr 42

    I have been on a literal 6 month binge from impossible kid. After he released this album I a 20 year hip hop fan, 17 year hip hop artist believe he is THE greatest artist of all time. Imagine how many will never get to hear this talent,
    #shareaesrock

    chiefersutherland

    crazy this album is the one that brought him into the public eye. but you know, party over here...

    Mr 42

    +chiefersutherland right haha, where has everyone been????

    Beat Junkie2016

    Mr 42 what kills me about Aesop, I've been listening since 2001 and I still trip out over shit he says from back in those days, like it only took me 17 years to figure out a verse from a song

    Parker Lane

    been listening to him since 2008. hes the best lyricist period.

  90. Krisztian Grof

    wtf happened to the comment section??

  91. Erin Graham
